Before studying further about this topic we should learn about List and String.
What is List?
The python lists are containers that are used to store a list of values of any type. Unlike other variables python lists are mutable i.e., we can change the elements of a list in place; Python will not create a fresh list when you make changes to an element of a list.
list=['A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E'] list type(list)
output- ['A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E'] list
What is String?
Python strings are characters enclosed in quotes of any type- single quotation marks, double quotation marks and triple quotation marks. Python strings are immutable.
string="Python" string type(string)
output- Python string
Convert list into string
We can use join method to convert list into string.
list1 =["pythonpoint","python","blog"] print(",".join(list1)) list1 =["pythonpoint","python","blog"] print("n".join(list1))
output- pythonpoint python blog
We can use str to convert list into string.
n=[1,5,8,2,7] print(str(n)) print(str(n)[1:-1]) print(str(n).strip(''))
Alternatively, we can use map() function to convert the items in the list to a string. After that, we can join them
n=[1,2,3,4,5] print(str(n)) print (', '.join(map(str, n)))
